Glem Dias Brings Expertise on Inclusion and Diversity to SMG
Posted by John Marshall on September. 21, 2015
Self Management Group is pleased to announce Glem Dias as a new consultant and associate, bringing additional expertise in talent and inclusion to our clients!
Inclusion and Diversity Is Crucial
In today’s context, diversity and inclusion are no longer a “nice thing to do”, but have been clearly positioned as business drivers. A diverse talent pool enables the organization to effectively serve a growing segment of diverse customers. In an inclusive culture, employees feel involved, valued, respected, and connected, thereby bringing out the best in them.
Research shows that highly diverse teams outperform non-diverse teams. Improving employee engagement, increasing innovation, and becoming relevant in a global marketplace are the key reasons for investing in diversity and inclusion.
New Offerings through Glem and SMG
Our new associate, Glem, is an award winning Talent and Inclusion Strategist who combines proven industry practices, global thought leadership, and effective methodology in his consultations with leaders at companies of all sizes, from Fortune 500 organizations to small businesses.
Our partnership brings together road-tested and award winning talent and inclusion offerings that have made a strategic bottom line impact for many businesses over the last decade. Our approach goes further than the traditional approach to diversity, as it integrates talent, leadership, inclusion, and a marketplace, customer, and community perspective.
The solutions are designed and developed to enable organizations to assess, create, and implement an action plan to realize the business case for diversity, talent, and inclusion.
